The NFL Draft will take place May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Over a two-week span, Redskins.com will help you get to know the prospects who could wear burgundy and gold, play for an NFC East Rival or become the steal of your 2014 Fantasy Football draft. Here are the top five defensive tackles and defensive ends, according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

Defensive Tackles

1.) AARON DONALD, Pittsburgh (6-1, 285 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Short, scrappy, instinctive, highly productive defensive penetrator who does not look the part, but inspires confidence he can be an exception to the rule… more.

2.) TIMMY JERNIGAN, Florida State (6-2, 299 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Slightly undersized, stoutly built, country-strong run stopper with the ability to drop anchor inside an odd front and develop into a solid, 3-4 movement nose tackle… more.

3.) LOUIS NIX III, Notre Dame (6-2, 331 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Despite standing to benefit from a more dominant senior season in South Bend, Nix, who already graduated, opted to forgo his final year of eligibility in order to provide for 13 siblings… more.

4.) RA’SHEDE HAGEMAN, Minnesota (6-6, 310 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
  A raw, converted tight end with a basketball background, Hageman is a big, athletic, finesse three-technique with intriguing dimensions and movement skills who fits best in an aggressive, one-gap scheme where he could fire into gaps… more.

5.) DANIEL MCCULLERS , Tennessee (6-7, 352 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
A big-boned, short-area plugger with some underachiever traits, McCullers has raw tools that could become special if he learns to harness the innate strength in his body and pairs with a DL coach who can refine his mechanics… more.

Defensive Ends

1.) JADEVEON CLOWNEY, South Carolina (6-6, 266 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
A physical specimen with a rare size-speed combination, Clowney was not as impactful as a junior while playing through injuries and being forced to deal with opposing offenses that fully accounted for him with extra chip protection… more.

2.) KONY EALY, Missouri (6-4, 273 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Big, athletic, ascending, pass-rush talent with the size, burst and flexibility to pressurize the edge as a right defensive end… more.

3.) DEE FORD, Aubrun (6-2, 331 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
High-motor college left defensive end perhaps suited for a rush linebacker role in the pros… more.

4.) SCOTT CRICHTON, Oregon State (6-3, 273 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
 Strong, athletic, raw defensive end prospect who would have been better served returning for his senior season… more.

5.) STEPHON TUITT, Notre Dame (6-5, 304 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Hulking, long-armed, physically gifted defensive lineman with desirable size, strength, athleticism and versatility to appeal as a five-technique or as a defensive tackle or base end in a 4-3… more.
